  • 1 pound salmon fillets
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt divided
  • 1 tsp garlic powder divided
  • 1 tsp onion powder divided
  • 1 Tbsp Italian seasoning divided
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper divided
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil divided
  • 3 cloves garlic sliced
  • 1/2 onion sliced
  • 1 zucchini quartered and sliced
  • 1 red bell pepper julienned
  • 1 tomato chopped


  • Use a 6 quart slow cooker and an oval oven safe dish, such as Pyrex, that will fit inside your slow cooker insert. Spray the oven safe dish well with cooking spray.
  • Place the salmon fillets in the bottom of the oven safe dish. Season with half of the salt, garlic powder, onion powder, Italian seasoning, black pepper and olive oil.
  • Add the garlic, onion, zucchini, bell pepper and tomato. Season with remaining spices, herbs and olive oil and gently toss the vegetables to coat.
  • Cover the oven safe dish with a glass lid if it has one or aluminum foil. Put the dish inside the slow cooker insert and then cover with the lid of the slow cooker.
  • Cook on low for approximately 6 hours or until salmon is cooked through and flakes easily. Serve with whole grain pasta or couscous.


If you don't have another dish such as Pyrex to go inside the slow cooker insert, just wrap everything in aluminum foil and then place inside the slow cooker insert.
